Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Hewlitt Fire - what about Weir, Robinson, Green gig on June 3?

Bob Weir, Chris Robinson, and Jackie Greene are coming to Colorado for gigs on Saturday, June 2nd, at The Boulder Theater— and Sunday, June 3rd, at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre. The Mish is very close to the Hewlitt Fire.

The Hewlett Fire was reported Monday, May 14, 2012, on the Canyon Lakes Ranger District of the Roosevelt National Forest. The fire is located approximately 20 miles northwest of Fort Collins, 10 miles west of the junction of Hwy 14 and Hwy 287, a.k.a. Ted's Place.

The burn area had prompted officials to evacuate about 80 homes, but all residents were allowed to return by Friday night. No buildings have been damaged. Officials said the blaze that scorched 12 square miles was 85 percent contained late last night.

The fire burned the Hewlitt Gultch Trail area, nearby Greyrock Mountain. Hewlitt Gultch Trail and Greyrock Trail are nearby each other. Their trailheads are accessed by Colorado Highway 14. I've hiked in there many times. The terrain in the burn area is steep and rugged. Keep your eyes on the weather reports and the wind conditions.

The Mish is located in Poudre Canyon, northwest of Fort Collins, along Colorado Highway 14. The Mish is shown here on a map. It's a few miles further up Poudre Canyon from the Hewlitt Fire. When driving along Hwy 14, the distance between Ted's Place and The Mish is 14 miles.

Mishawaka has postponed the Keb’ Mo’ show scheduled today because of the Hewlett Fire and its travel difficulties along Colorado Highway 14.

Wow. I know that area really well. Used to live up the canyon for a while. Thanks for posting that Mishawaka link; surprisingly, it pretty much looks like it used to. Nice to know some things stay kinda the same :-)

I'd sure love to see those guys there. Or the Boulder Theater, which is wonderful too, but Mishawaka is such a special, rustic, homey place. I'm glad the fire didn't effect it, or the homes up there.

listen to over 100 shows on the Live Music Archive
-- taped over the years at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre venue

The bands taped at The Mish include:
Rat Dog, String Cheese Incident, Derek Trucks Band, Drive-By Truckers, Disco Biscuits, Hot Buttered Rum, Umphrey's McGee, Leftover Salmon, Sam Bush Band, Greensky Bluegrass, and Yonder Mountain String Band.
The Mishawaka Amphitheatre has a long history. My first time there was 1980. The previous owner was busted several years ago in a mmj marijuana grow operation by a multi-jurisdictional task force. It was controversial, but he sold The Mish about 18 months ago to it's new and current owner.
